  • iPhone X Is the 'Most Breakable Ever' According to Test

That phone not only survived drops but we have dropped one while in a cold run, watching it bounce as it hit the ground and drag a few feet before it came to a stop.

"You'd expect there to be a high price to pay for a lovely phone like the iPhone X. Unfortunately for consumers, in the end it's likely to be more than the $1,000 they've already invested." said Jason Siciliano, vice president global creative director at SquareTrade.

It wouldn't really feel like an Apple product launch if there wasn't some sort of technical issue for users to contend with and the release of the new iPhone X hasn't broken tradition.

All in all, it appears that the iPhone X is one of the most durable and well-made iPhones from Apple, though we still wouldn't suggest you go chucking it around or stab it with knives all the same. Apple is now offering 30-minute online training sessions to iPhone X customers to help them get the most out of their new smartphone. In the second drop, the phone fell directly on its front face.

Several Hezbollah members are being tried in absentia for the killing by a UN-backed tribunal in The Hague, Netherlands. He earlier said that those who cooperate with Hezbollah must be "punished".

The folks over at protection plan company SquareTrade put the smartphone's durability to the test, and well - the results do not warrant the $1,000 price tag. It emerged with more cracks erupting across both sides of the device. Internal brackets, spot welds and foam hold the front-facing cameras firmly in place so they can pull off delicate features like Portrait Mode, and the rear-facing Face ID camera technology comes out of the display when it's separated, making the OLED display replaceable without fiddling with the cameras embedded within it.

Another pricey choice was the stainless steel chassis of the iPhone X, which cost $36 versus $21.50 for the aluminum housing of the iPhone 8. Jerry's unable to bend the iPhone X, which means it's safe for skinny jeans. Nevertheless, SquareTrade conducted it and found that there were some cracks, but most harm was done to some of the iPhone X's operability.

What do you think about SquareTrade's iPhone X breakability test? "The iPhoneX's fragility, along with Apple's $549 fee for most repairs, make it the definition of a high-risk phone".
